When you get to the market this week, ask for an “I Love Farmers Markets” temporary tattoo, stick in on, and take a clever photo of you or your loved one showing it off!

Text your photo to 706-288-7895 by Friday, Aug 10. The top three winners (chosen by a handful of our board members) will be announced on Aug 11, and each will receive a $25 ALG gift certificate.

We’ll be celebrating in a number of ways this coming week, and thank you in advance for being a part of it all by supporting your local farmers through this markets every week.

See you there!
Cheers!
